Alright, grab a box of tissues…
Back in February, country star Luke Bryan and wife Caroline Boyer Bryan shared the sad news that their infant niece Sadie Brett Boyer, the daughter of Caroline’s brother Bo Boyer and his wife Ellen, had passed away at just 7-months-old. The youngster suffered from multiple heath problems including heart issues and an infection that had impacted her liver.
In the few short months since Brett’s passing, Luke and Caroline have assembled a barn full of farmyard friends in order to honor the little one’s memory. Caroline posted the heartfelt message below to her Instagram account:
“Dear Brett….when your sweet Mama told me of the challenges you might face in life, I was floored when her first words were “I can’t handle the thought of someone making fun of her.” She never said, “Why me? Why us?” Nothing. Her words were all about you. Protecting you. Loving you with a love that only a Mother knows. Sweet Angel, you changed so many stubborn hearts that most thought were unbreakable. The first time we saw your smile was beyond amazing. You instantly became one of the greatest blessings to the the entire Boyer/Wells/Bryan family. So….to get to my point of the picture….when you were about a month old, I promised you a white pony! I found you one…..along with some other adorable mini animals! Your mom and I hijacked one of your Uncle Luke’s barns and started having a little fun with it (thank you sweetie @lukebryan)! We still have a lot of work to do, but it’s coming together! “Brett’s Barn” is officially in the works. This is all for you Queen Bee. We love you to the moon and back.”
Luke also took to Instagram to share this cute video of Caroline tending to the animals while a mini-horse stepped on the country star’s toes…
Though the horses, donkeys, chickens, and pigs are really cute— Goober Goldsby the goat is the real star of the barnyard!
"Hello friends!!" Meet Goober Goldsby (GG)….our first sweetie to join Brett's Barn. For some reason, GG was abandoned shortly after birth. Luckily, our dear friend @aquatroyg rescued this sweet baby and bottle fed him until he was strong enough to join our family. GG enjoys running in circles, climbing, stealing kisses, stealing cat food, and annoying the other animals! Occasionally, he escapes the barn and runs straight to our house for a visit. GG thinks it's funny to destroy my landscaping, watch the kids swim, make himself at home on the furniture, and he LOVES my brother!! Oh how we love this silly goat! ♥️🐐#brettsbarn #brightforbrett
What a neat way to remember their niece. We hope the Bryan family shares more videos and snapshots of their ongoing “Brett’s Barn” project.
Share this thoughtful memorial with other fans of this amazing family!
